The PB movement is growing, thanks to you. This week, 125 of you donated to PBP for Giving Tuesday, bringing in $16,497!
You made sure we met our target of $7,000 and secured the $7,000 in matching funds from our board and major donors. Then you shot us far past our goal, giving $9,497. That more than doubles last year’s Giving Tuesday totals!
Your contributions are helping us take PB to the next level, and grow as an organization. We’re thrilled to introduce you to the newest member of the PBP team – our Training & Operations Manager, Meg Wade
! Meg participated in the first year of PB in Chicago’s 49th Ward, then served two years on our Board of Directors. Now, she’s boosting our capacity to support dozens of new PB processes. Your donations made this hire possible.
Again, thank you so much for your support yesterday – whether you gave, forwarded an email to a friend, or shared a post about PB on Facebook. It’s great to feel a part of such an inspiring PB community.

P.S. If you want to get more involved in the growing PB movement, apply to serve on our Board or as a paid intern – the deadline for applications is this Friday. And if you missed the chance to give on Tuesday, you can still contribute here.
